The boy stood on the burning deck

어제 하루를 연차휴가로 쓰고 쉬었다. 게임하고 낮잠자며 보내고 싶었는데...
둘 다 제대로 못한 것 같다.
받아놓았던 pdf들 중에 R.G.GRANT의 BATTLE AT SEA 
                                   3,000 YEARS OF NAVAL WARFARE 라는 흥미를 끄는 것이 있어서
찬찬히 들여다보려고 했는데 ㅡ.ㅡ; FOREWORD 부분의 중간정도 읽고 멈췄다.
Cape Ecnomus between Rome and Carthage, or Leyte Gulf between the US and Japan in
World War 2,... battles of Chesapeake Bay or the Nile 등에서 꽤 궁금증이 도져서였다.
언제나 종이책을 구매해서 보는 날이 올까..?

욕심인 것 같다. 아직 못읽은 영어원서가 많~이 있다. 스티븐 킹의 캐리, 살렘스 랏, 샤이닝 합본도 있고
휴먼, 근막통증증후군, 레미제라블 영역본, NIV 성경, 휠록의 라틴어, 아티카 그리스어 입문 등등.
Music도 잊으면 곤란하다.


네이버 명왕음월님의 블로그 <영어에 미치자> 에서 게시물들 읽다가 필사노트 transcription 읽으려니
지금 나에게 필요한 것이 아닌가 생각했다. http://blog.naver.com/ksc0430/20120216364 <-필사노트
^^;;; NLT 2nd  욥기부터 필사할까 하는데.. 고민중이다. WHAT IF? 나 열정적 고전읽기 시리즈의 글들도 있는데,.. .


암튼지간에 읽다가 접은 foreward 옮겨본다.

Samuel Johnson said in 1759: "No man will be a sailor who has contrivance enough to get himself into
a jail; for being in a ship is being in a jail, with the chance of being drowned." In fact, the great man had
understated his case. He was talking of sailors in general, not of those serving in navies in time of war.
The naval prayer, first recorded in the 17th century and still part of the church services of Britain's Royal
Navy, asks for preservation not only "from the dangers of the sea" but also "from the violence of the
enemy." It is this "violence" that is the overriding theme of this book.

 

Naval warfare is almost as old as conflicts between armies on land, and as in land campaigns, it is the great
battles that catch the imagination, the titanic clashes that can be said to have changed the course of history.
Some, such as Cape Ecnomus between Rome and Carthage, or Leyte Gulf between the US and Japan in
World War 2, involved vast fleets; others, such as the battles of Chesapeake Bay or the Nile, were fought by
a relatively small number of ships. In spite of this, their strategic consequences were equally momentous.

 

While most nations have a long history of fighting on land, the list of countries that can be termed
"maritime nations" is much shorter. There are certain nations and peoples that appear again and again as
participants in the battles recorded in this book: in the Classical world the Carthaginians and the Greeks,
in the Middle Ages the Venetians and the Genoese, in the age of European exploration the Spanish, the
English, and the Dutch. Geography plays a key role, and some countries have little or no coastling, or
difficult access to the high seas. For some, history teaches that the threat to national eistence and way of
life comes from across a land border, and this ever-present fact naturally colors thinking about defense. For
maritime countries the sea looms larger in their national consciousness.

The boy stood on the burning deck
  Whence all but he had fled;
The flame that lit the battle's wreck
  Shone round him o'er the dead.

 

Yet beautiful and bright he stood,
  As born to rule the storm;
A creature of heroic blood,
  A proud, though child-like form.

 

The flames rolled on–he would not go
  Without his Father's word;
That father, faint in death below,
  His voice no longer heard.

 

He called aloud–'say, Father, say
  If yet my task is done?'
He knew not that the chieftain lay
  Unconscious of his son.

 

'Speak, father!' once again he cried,
  'If I may yet be gone!'
And but the booming shots replied,
  And fast the flames rolled on.

 

Upon his brow he felt their breath,
  And in his waving hair,
And looked from that lone post of death
  In still yet brave despair.

 

And shouted but once more aloud,
  'My father! must I stay?'
While o'er him fast, through sail and shroud,
  The wreathing fires made way.

 

They wrapt the ship in splendour wild,
  They caught the flag on high,
And streamed above the gallant child,
  Like banners in the sky.

 

There came a burst of thunder sound–
   The boy–oh! where was he?
Ask of the winds that far around
  With fragments strewed the sea!–

 

With mast, and helm, and pennon fair,
  That well had borne their part–
But the noblest thing which perished there
  Was that young faithful heart.
